. thank you! >> all right. we're watching mitt romney there in springfield, virginia. only 40 days until the election. president obama we're also watching for as well. he's also in virginia, expected to speak in virginia beach moments from now. you see the podium there. virginia, a very important swing state. 13 electoral votes in that state. the recent polls now showing that president obama is slightly, slightly ahead of romney in the state. the last cnn poll of polls for virginia, he was leading 50% to romney's 44%. you might recall back in 2008 president obama won virginia and became the first democrat since 1964, lyndon johnson to actually win that state and that was significant. i'll bring in jim acosta who is traveling with mitt romney. he's at the event talking a little bit about the message we heard from mitt romney. clearly it's important for him to reach the working class. that came in some of the comments he made regarding trade with china. what does he need to do? what does his team think they need to do to make sure he holds on to virginia? >> reporter: suzanne, as you know,
's by far the most important debate, chris. you tell me whether governor romney has the right strategy here. >> it's in politico. we don't know the veracity of it. we don't know whether that's what they mean to do. but we know this. that if you are explaining, you are losing. what governor romney has been doing a lot of is trying to direct the record on president obama. in the sound you just played in that video the president said we know we don't get it right but we don't care. it's cool because it's politics. mitt romney is not going to do anything that shames the president into being a nicer guy or changing the way that he describes mitt romney because remember this has been the most rough, absolutely negative reelection campaign ever run by an incumbent. if mitt romney thinks he can change that by correcting the record he is making a mistake. >> i would say what's happening is what happens in every election. what we saw two weeks ago was the reverse. the obama campaign saying the romney campaign is coming off. you don't want to be on the defensive. what the debates should be about, it's
but first right now some brand new stories and breaking news. jon: zeroing in the on the swing states. dueling campaign events in the same political battleground of virginia. governor romney and president obama both expected to speak there shortly. plus the obama administration insists sanctions are working to keep iran's nuclear ambitions in check. others have serious doubts. what happens if the doubters are right? in the race for the white house do the polls paint a fair picture? is there media bias? our "news watch" panel weighs in. all new, all live is "happening now." jon: welcoming jenna lee back from italy. i have hope you had a good --. jenna: our friends maya and pat had an amazing wedding. congratulations to them. back to work today. jon: big day on the campaign trail for the candidates today. we have every angle covered. touchdown tore football fans. i'm jon scott. jenna: i'm jenna lee. first the headline today is that the strike is over. the nfl and the referees union reaching what some are describing as a tentative labor agreement. we'll see if it sticks. this afte
the carpet. if mitt romney says something, it's front page news. >> jon, my counterpart is right, this has been happening for a long time, but it's gotten worse lately. and where do you hear in the press that the president has only met with his jobs council once since january, that the president with the attacks in benghazi, he won't come out and say they were truly terrorist attacks. >> oh, he said that. >> he did not come out publicly and hold a press conference in n saying that. let me finish, please peter, i did not interrupt you. where do you hear in the liberal mainstream media that the president's jobs bill where he says republicans are blocking him, that his own democrats voted down in the senate. and one last one that's a doozy, that harry reid has not put forth a budget in three years. so basically, journalists today that do biased reporting, they're actually doing themselves a disservice in their trade. i mean, this is an election year. people tune to the news to be informed. jon: we just got those gdp numbers out today, peter, 3.3% -- 1.3% growth in gdp in the most recent quart

debt and use the rest for some nation building right here at home. it's time for a new economic patriotism, rooted in the belief that growing our economy begins with a strong, thriving middle class. read my plan. compare it to governor romney's, and decide for yourself. >> again, this is a two-minute ad, unusually long in politics these days. the president goes on to promise to create more than 1 million new manufacturing jobs in the next four years if he is re-elected. >> mitt romney also stumps today at a campaign event with veterans, as he continues to get questions about his compassion for the middle class and struggling americans. romney in an interview with nbc news pointed to his universal health care law, passed when he was massachusetts governor, saying, "i think throughout this campaign as well, we talked about my record in massachusetts. don't forget, i got everybody in my state insured. 100% of the kids in our state have health insurance. i don't think there's anything that shows more empathy and care about the people of this country than that kind of record." but he
. that is not being taken into account in a lot of these polls. but doug is right to say that we have to deal in reality, and reality is obama may not have this kind of substantial lead but he certainly is leading. i think team romney now understands that. we're five weeks away from the campaign, from the election, rather, and what you're seeing from the romney campaign is a real focus. five weeks away. obama is leading. by at least a little bit anyway, if not tied. so this really does focus the romney team's mind. martha: which brings up a great point, doug. psychologically, what is the impact of seeing these numbers which we have all been used to seeing neck-and-neck throughout the process? you suddenly see these big swings where looks like president obama is leading by a lot. it does a couple things. it may motivate and put fire under the romney campaign but also may make democrats overconfident. >> well, i think it also could, well create some enthusiasm for the democrats. that's not a partisan statement. martha: could be. >> it could also, martha, and this is something that i think monic
for things the country had done right. all that -- that is in a long tradition of presidents acknowledging past imperfections. these cannot by any normal dictionaries amount to apologies. either formal or informal. again, last month, when romney accepted his party's nomination, he repeated the assertion that obama had begun his presidency with an apology tour, and obama had confessed the u.s. had "dictated to other nations." that fact check story went into greater detail, pointing out that obama's trips to europe, latin america, to the muslim world during his first months in office, no indications were he had said the nation had made mistakes. in most of those cases, the context was a call for better relations with other countries after which he described as damage done by misguided moves by his predecessor, bush. so we fact check that. again, it did not seem to make a difference to the campaign. earlier this month, when that violence broke out at u.s. diplomatic outposts in libya and egypt. romney jumped to accuse obama of disgraceful handling of the situation, including sympathizing with
